Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Pathways Class: Amines and Polyamines Biosynthesis

Summary:
This class contains pathways of the biosynthesis of amines and polyamines. These compounds play a variety of roles in metabolism, including acting as osmoprotectants, keeping DNA in a condensed state, and serving as intermediates in the synthesis of macromolecules.
